Very nice beach area just a few hours from Bangkok. Good shopping, golf, and other sports. There are lots of restaurants, bars, and some shows. Very cheap prices.
Quick Tips: The express bus is faster than the train but I recommend taking a limousine or at least a taxi for a fast trip from Bangkok.
Best Way To Get Around: You can walk around most places, samlor rickshaws, tuk tuks, and taxis are available, cheap prices.
